Actor and singer Meat Loaf, actually Michael Lee Aday (born Marvin Lee Aday on September 27, 1947) celebrates his 63rd birthday today.

Back in the 1970s there was a school bus trip to Canberra and Sydney.
The sound track was a cassette of Meat Loaf’s ‘Bat Out Of Hell’.
I can’t actually remember it not playing.
There was probably lots of ABBA, as well, but that’s not as cool a memory.
I mean, there’s the thought of a bus full of kids all singing along to ‘Ferndando’ or there’s the thought of a bus full of fourteen year olds all howling along to something like this:

BOY: On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
GIRL: Will he offer me his mouth?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Will he offer me his teeth?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Will he offer me his jaws?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Will he offer me his hunger?
BOY: Yes.
GIRL: Again, will he offer me his hunger?
BOY: Yes!
GIRL: Yes.
BOY: On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
GIRL: Yes.
BOY: I bet you say that to all the boys!
(Ba da da da da daaaa, Ba da da da da daaaaa…)
